It's the Mona Lisa chav innit?

31 January 2010

This tee is the definition of kitsch, I really love it. I also realised that I must go into TopMan more often as they have some really awesome t-shirts and their XS sizes are perfect for girls too. Also, why are the guys clothes so much cheaper? This Tee was such a bargain at only £14 rather than the typical £20 paid for girls tees?

The Mona Lisa Chav tee really makes me chuckle. Complete with stereotypical tower blocks in the background, a hair bow (really?!) gold hoops, name necklace, sovereign rings and scary false nails. This tee has been going down well with my Art History friends too.

As I said before, this tee lends itself nicely to Art Histoy and I'll leave you all with a picture of Marcel Duchamp's infamous L.H.O.O.Q, where he defaced a postcard version of Mona Lisa, causing much uproar when he presented it as art. Never without controversy, when pronounced in french, L.H.O.O.Q translates as "Elle a chaud au cul", or "She has a hot ass". I'll never forget the novelty of hearing my Art History lecturers say that out loud in class.

  2. I have to admit, I often buy men's clothes rather than women's. I love how they are usually cheaper and I always find a better fit!

    I love that quirky change of the Mona Lisa, it has been Britified is there is such a thing

  15. ahhh there's way too many super cool things going on in this outfit!! the jacket and the tshirt with the hair bow omggg and love the gems on the jeggings!
    p.s. i had a haircut in selfridges it was great! and cheaper than you'd expect! i'd totally go there with my coloured hair requests now then if they've done something like that before, although the guy i had before looked my age and was going to snobs that night too and i was like eeek! it was too awkward for me!

  34. Winnie!

    It is so rock-art! I adore to see you almost like a punk girl, but not too extreme, of course! It is also so nice to buy great things with a better price...in general, male´s fashion is so much cheaper..I guess...at least at stores like that!
